Being the start of the Judicial year this weekend is rather rich in High Sheriff Judicial Services.We proceeded in some haste from Guildford to Parham House for the Service for Her Majesty’s Judges in Sussex hosted by the High Sheriff of West Sussex at St Peter’s Church at Parham House , where Lady Emma Barnard (the HS) is chatelain. The Church, close to the House, is rural (pews faced each other in boxes and there is a fire place lit on Christmas Day!) in a stunning location under the South Downs. The Service was very special in such an intimate location, but there was room for lots of judges and a Bishop along with other clergy. We were then entertained to a delicious
tea in the Great Hall. Congratulations to the HS of West Sussex for a very memorable afternoon.
